One of the Twin Cities’ alternative weeklies went to church last week, offering an article exploring the mega-church after an election supposedly decided by moral values. The author visited Wooddale Church in Eden Prairie and the piece gives an ‘Alice in Wonderland’ experience (complete with illustrations) of the bewildering mega-church movement. The piece also closes with plenty of fair questions but no room for real answers.
But the perspective alone is what’s interesting. In a sense, this is what church looks like to the ousider. One of the hardest things for churches to do is understand what it’s like for a newcomer.
